So last month, I took part in the first run of @The_WriteReads, and @EgmontBooksUK Ultimate Blog Tour for The Beast and the Bethany. The 2nd run has now kicked off, and will continue until 25th September. I absolutely loved this book, and I want to continue to talk about it, so here is my spotlight post!
Ebenezer Tweezer is a youthful 511-year-old. He keeps a beast in the attic of his mansion, who he feeds all manner of things (including performing monkeys, his pet cat and the occasional cactus) and in return the beast vomits out presents for Ebenezer, as well as potions which keep him young and beautiful. But the beast grows ever greedier, and soon only a nice, juicy child will do. So when Ebenezer encounters orphan Bethany, it seems like (everlasting) life will go on as normal. But Bethany is not your average orphan . . .
